By the time my twin sister called me for help, she and her children had already missed numerous days from work and school because of head lice. After using an over-the-counter pesticide according to label instructions, she was still finding lice and nits. As a single mom, my sister was overwhelmed just trying to keep herself together, feeling like she’d never win the battle.

I suspected my sister’s experience was not unique and realized that parents have been left to tackle the time-consuming and frustrating task of head lice removal alone, while trying to navigate through a barrage of information and misinformation about head lice treatment. Lice Happens was created to offer an alternative, and I’ve found it to be a fulfilling way for me to apply my process-oriented quality assurance background to a much needed service.
